  • Keeping The Promise Implementation Plan

    Created: 31/03/2022

    A major plan containing 80 actions to improve the lives of children, young people and families in and around the edges of care has been published.

    The ‘Keeping The Promise Implementation Plan’ aims to significantly reduce the number of children in care, with at least £500 million over this Parliamentary term to help families stay together.

    The Scottish Government will also introduce a national allowance for foster and kinship carers and provide a £200 grant each year for 16 to 25-year-olds with care experience.

    Other commitments include:

    • redesigning the Children's Hearings System
    • redesigning the governance of the care system
    • ending the placement of 16 and 17-year-olds in young offender institutions
    • reducing the use of restraint in residential or secure care
